Description of problem:
System:
	Dell Inspiron 7000, (Mobile PII 366, 320 RAM)

If a Lucent Orinoco wireless nic (orinoco Silver) is inserted during bootup of fedora core2 test 1 the installer promptly crashes and ends with a message stating it's safe to reboot the system..  

It is always reproducible,  if the NIC is not inserted during power up the installer does NOT crash.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert pcmcia nic (orinoco silver)
2. boot fedora core2 CD
3. anaconda dies with  "it's safe to reboot your system" message
    

Actual Results:  anaconda dies with  "it's safe to reboot your system" message
    

Expected Results:  it should have prompted for an ESSID so that it could enable the wireless lan connectivity
